Can you fit a hood inside the car/trunk?

Bought a hood that I need to transport from the warehouse.

The trunk is big, I reckon I could get three bodies in there but the hood is BIG I have never measured or tried to fit one but I am leaning towards no.

the hood is going to be wider than the trunk aperature.

Even if you could get it inside the passenger compartment, the hood would be in the way of the driver

I feel like if I answered that question I might get myself implicated so I plead the 5th.

Oh yeah, for sure whole bodies. No one really wants parts to mess with.

Alligators are good at making bodies disappear, or so I have been told.

Or in Hannibal's case pigs.

Remove your hood, drive to the warehouse, install the new hood, drive it home.
I thought you were just trying to be funny but that's actually a good idea!! [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787]

Rented a uhaul to transport it it. Wouldve just installed it at the warehouse if I were skilled enough to install it in under 4 hrs (fiberglass cervini hood but still)

You really only need to take a socket, and a ratchet and a buddy to help. It does not need to be perfectly aligned, just good enough to close to get it home. You don't even need to hook up the windshield washers at this point. Don't forget the hood latch thingy and definitely do not drive fast until you get hood pins in. The shaker can also be installed at home. My suggestion was actually a serious one. I helped a buddy of mine get a Nova hood home the same way when we were just out of High School. (It was my idea then too).

I'd have borrowed my wife's Durango and taken a lot of blankets with me.
